National Night Out
Don't forget to RSVP!
National Night Out is just a few weeks away. On Tuesday, August 4, 2015 from 6pm to 8pm, the Town of Atherton will host its second annual National Night Out in the Park at Holbrook-Palmer Park, 150 Watkins Ave.
Residents are encouraged to join members of the Atherton Police Department, CHP and Menlo Park Fire District to help promote resident involvement in crime prevention and disaster preparedness, and have fun while doing it.
The event will include tug-of-war and sack races led by police personnel, prizes, balloon makers and face painters, snow cones and cotton candy, music, a jumpy house, and a BBQ. There will be informational booths to include the Atherton Disaster and Preparedness Team (ADAPT), CHP and the Atherton Police Department. And don't forget to stop by the Atherton Crime Prevention booth for crime prevention tips and plenty of children's handouts to include glow sticks, finger lights, temporary tattoos, stickers and much more.
The family-oriented event will be highlighted by the CHP emergency helicopter which will land in the grassy field of the Park for children to look at and take pictures in. Click here to view pictures of the helicopter landing in the Park this past March.
This is a free event for all Atherton residents!
We encourage residents to RSVP so we can plan accordingly for the BBQ and handouts. However the ticket is not required for entrance.
